Current administratorsEdit

Administrators are given access for one year per the Restricted access policy. Regular votes are held to confirm each user's status. Other languages indicate the areas in which the administrators might be able to converse with outside project members, or help provide public domain translations.

Confirmation discussionsEdit

Restricted access depends on the continued support of the community. This may be tested by a vote of confidence, in which a simple majority (50%+1) must support the user's continued access for it to be retained. (What access a discussion concerns should be explicitly noted in the discussion's introduction.) Any user may propose a vote of confidence, but at least three established users must support the need for one before it can be called. Such a proposal is made automatically one year after the last scheduled or called proposal (concerning all restricted access).

In the case of an unscheduled (called) proposal, the user may not use the restricted access for any non-trivial action at any time until the vote is closed. A bureaucrat will eventually archive the discussion and, if so decided, request removal of restricted access by a steward.

admin since February 2009 (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). Billinghurst will be reconfirmed automatically unless at least three established users oppose, which will trigger a vote of confidence with decision by simple majority.

  •   Oppose. Several edits have blank summaries.--Jusjih (talk) 21:13, 3 January 2022 (UTC)
  •   Support Edit summaries seem OK to me, they're used when there could be doubt over the edit intention or rationale and that's what's most important. Besides, edits don't benefit that much from trivial summaries like "more" or "ask" - you still need to look at the diff to figure out what was added or asked in that case.

  •   Support, has been so helpful as an editor and long-time admin. The edit summaries don't begin to devalue that. PseudoSkull (talk) 10:02, 6 January 2022 (UTC)

  •   Support --EncycloPetey (talk) 18:59, 11 January 2022 (UTC)
  •   Support Helpful admin, and I don't think some blank edit summaries are sufficient reason for an oppose vote.廣九直通車 (talk) 06:37, 21 January 2022 (UTC)


admin since January 2021 (see previous discussions), currently active (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). Jan.Kamenicek will be reconfirmed automatically unless at least three established users oppose, which will trigger a vote of confidence with decision by simple majority.


admin since December 2006 (see previous discussions), currently inactive (contributions · logs · count · crossactivity). Spangineer will be removed automatically unless a simple majority of established users support continued access.
  • @Spangineer: I see you're still active on other projects. Any plans for activity at enWS in the foreseeable future? Do you still need the tools here? --Xover (talk) 08:48, 3 January 2022 (UTC)
